A true detailed history of the American Indians.

I have been searching for a real and detailed history of the American Indian history and the relationship with the whites.
This book has given a eye full. I was able to get stories from my grandparents and histories from other sources, but they were just fragments.
This book has taught me much. It is a great read and I will read it again later.

Excellent intro to the subject

I found this to be a timely and full
introduction to the history of European and U.S. military conflicts with Native Americans, beginning with the 17th century and ending at the burial of Sitting Bull. One needs to realize that this book does not continue into the 20th or 21st centuries. What it does do, hwever, it does well. Utley is a master of the historian's craft, and a good storyteller as well. The tragic story is told with an eye toward participants on both sides, and it reveals how many of the contacts and betrayals are motivated by greed, fear, misunderstanding, envy, and simple human ignorance. At times events are seen to be caused by human malevolence, and at other times by sheer accident. However, there is nobility and heroism throughout the story as well, and both Native American and those of European heritage are lifted up. It may be a misconstrual on my part, but there appear to be more of the former ethnic groups than the latter.
